POLICE have released a picture of a man they want to speak to over motorbikes being used illegal near Hereford.

West Mercia Police said officers wanted to identify the man after a "number of incidents" involving off road bikes. 

Reports varied from the bikes, which are not road legal, being used on the road or on private land without the owners' permission.

The incidents have been reported in Wellington and Tillington, north of Hereford, and in the Barons Cross area of Leominster. 

"We're particularly keen to identify this male seen in the attached image," police said.

"For those that own these bikes, they are not road legal and cannot be used on the road.

"You must have the landowners permission to use them off road.

"Police can issue a Section 59 warning under the Police Reform Act to those using these bikes illegally and potentially seize and crush the bikes."
